Does the significant price drop of the 24-70 f/2.8L II give an indication that an IS version is coming soon???

I think owners of the 5DIII that would consider "upgrading" to an imaginary 5D4 are probably people with really deep pockets and lots of disposable income- so more power to you! As a professional artist I try to keep gear expenses to necessity. I can't see how dropping another 3k+ (If I owned a 5D3) would be a wise move.
And since Canon has released 3 relatively new FF bodies in recent years (1DX, 5D3 and 6D), I really can't see how it would make much sense for them to release any new bodies with incremental upgrades.
Who would they be targeting with this new camera? I can only see a need for a high mega pixel camera in Canon's lineup.
I don't really need better high ISO performance. Lifting shadows could work better for low ISO shots. The D800 works nicely with bright backgrounds, whereas with 5D3 you choose to get the background or the subjects in front of it.
... or use Magic Lantern's dual_iso module to lift the dr of iso 100 to 14ev+ which solves exactly the situation you described.
I'm more curious about the sensor performance, particularly its low ISO dynamic range. If Canon shows no improvement in this department, it's unlikely we'll see anything better coming out of Canon sensors in the next 4 to 5 years.
This is a good example of why we should be oh so concerned about sales figures. Canon has been behind in low ISO dynamic range throughout their sensor lineup for a few years now, and it hasn't hurt their dSLR sales.
If the roof on your house looks to be in excellent shape and doesn't leak, would you replace it? Unlikely…if it ain't broke, don't fix it. From Canon's perspective, their sensors 'ain't broke'.
New here, been lurking.
So I guess I just dont get the full frame mirrorless excitment!
My thought is small mirrorless body, APS-C sensor, small light weight lenses, decent lens speed.
Full Frame sensor means fast lenses are BIG lenses! Not really conducive for light weight travel kits.
Enjoying my full frame 6D and multiple L lenses, but they are heavy!
